Band of the Day


White Lung

Rebellious, propulsive punk rock that shreds at breakneck speed
I caught you dead down by the orange tree, I know that we felt it.
lyrics from St. Dad

Sorrylanded on “Top Albums of the Year” lists Exclaim!, Magnet, amongst others while Rolling Stone marked Sorry in their “Top 10 Albums Of The Year”.

Sorry was also nominated as “Best Album Art of 2012″ by NME and made the shortlist for “Best Album Art” by Art Vinyl in London.
